Born and raised in the midwest, I've always had a passion for design and sports. While studying graphic design at the University of Saint Francis, I also played collegiate volleyball and ran track and field. 


I kickstarted my career at the local Chamber of Commerce, working

as the graphic designer and executive assistant. I wore many hats and learned how to efficiently multitask between designing,

event planning, and project management. 

Knowing that I wanted to work in the sporting goods industry,

I applied for a job at Wilson Sporting Goods. I am currently the graphic/ product designer for the apparel and uniforms platform. 

I create factory ready designs for soft goods, including graphics, prints, and packaging. I design and assist in the development of products, such as bags and headwear. In my spare time I free-lance, working specifically with small businesses to create and develop their brand identity. 

Working in-house has taught me to work quickly and efficiently.

I learned how to follow brand guidelines and be creative, while maintaining consistency. Freelancing has strengthened my communication skills and developed my problem solving abilities. Working in the sporting goods industry has enabled my passion

and experience to reflect in the products and designs I create. 

When I am not designing, I am playing volleyball, traveling,

triathlon training, impatiently waiting for the next episode of

Game of Thrones, or hanging out in the nearest donut shop.

As her professor, she was an exceptional designer and illustrator. Very hardworking, enthusiastic, skilled and humble are just a few words that describe her. Nikki was incredibly responsible and organized and she brought that to every project. She had an incredible work ethic that I'm confident she's maintained post graduation

Nikki has been invaluable to the branding of our business. She was able to build on our existing content while also introducing new, and very much improved, ideas. Her turn-around time is incredible, and she is a pleasure to work with. She took our never-ending indecision in stride and always exceeding expectations.
